    I was considering widening my stance a tiny bit. I already bought now tires and was wondering what would be a good size spacer on my stock alloys? Thanks for any feedback guys.

    Wheel spacers are available from .75in to 2 in.

    Typically purchased brands, the last brand has most options in terms of width.

    I am debating on 265/75 16's or 285/75 16's for mine. I have a feeling I am gonna get spacers as well if I go the 285 route. Has it killed your gas mileage yet? What are the side effects from putting on spacers? Thanks for the help.

    I went from 22 to about 20 a gallon. but I am a conservative driver. I still have my 265/75/16's and I am going to put them on some cheap rims to use as my dd tires.
